TI Group - FSC CertifiedOne of our stated corporate values is to lead the industry in “environmentally responsible solutions and practices”. As a Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified company, we not only provide the widest range of certified environmentally friendly materials in the workplace, we also provide expertise to the industry in qualifying for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation.

Our Product Specialists regularly meet with current and new suppliers to investigate new solutions. Materials are processed through our “New Materials Testing” procedure and become approved or rejected for manufacturing. Marketing samples are produced and delivered to our sales people in new ideas learning sessions. With respect to environmental responsibility and sustainability, our recycling programs divert more than 50,000 tons of materials from traditional landfills. Our goal is to double this in the future.

In addition, our company was the first Large Format production facility in Canada (2003) to focus on UV Printing technology. This technology is free from any solvents and heavy metals. A key supplier, Durst, was the only company to assure us that its inks are VOC and Heavy Metal Free. Our UV inks also meet the EN71Part 3 standard from the stringent European Council Directive 1999/13/EC.
